My son saw me setting everything up this afternoon and asked, "Why don't you look outside and paint what you see?" Well, unless a Johnny Depp lookalike decides to pose nude under the palm tree, I don't think that's going to happen. As much as I appreciate landscapes, I'm no Bob "Happy Trees" Ross! I prefer people and I plan to go more surreal and paint my dreams because acrylics can help me do that faster than a pencil (although I will never say goodbye to the pencil).
We have a wedding to attend in the Bahamas this summer, but when we get back we're looking for a friend for my husky, Misty. The house just isn't the same without our lab, Brady, and if we can rescue a dog from a shelter that can bond with us, that's the route we'll take. Life is sweeter with a dog (or two, or three...) and when I saw this amazing video today it made me want another one NOW!
Btw, here's my wip done in colored pencil...which I may put away for a later date. I'm anxious to dip into the acrylics!
Wishing you a great day and I will visit your blog soon! xo
